Motley told me.   We have been for a walk in the sunshine down by the river, I thought he looked a bit scruffy and I had only groomed him a few days ago when a couple of combs full of fur came out. Today I thought I was going to comb him balled, it was falling out.

It was a beautiful day with us today. The birds were singing and the sun was warm. I spoke to the friend this afternoon who keeps his sheep with us. He took them away a few weeks ago, as they were lambing. He told me today that the lambs will be back with us at the weekend! - That is when Spring arrives for me! I will post a photo when they arrive! 😁

Motley must look very smart now Jan? 🐶🦮

It needs a video with the frolicking lambs, I love watching them when they start to play.

Anémones and early orchids out here.
Lamb cheap in Greece Jan ... 500g leg about £€4

Oscar had a prune / shave yesterday as he suffers in the sun. Corrie always sheds. Long white hairs that attach to everything.

But doesn´t the fur protect him from the sun?

Only place I have seen lamb in this country is in the supermarket freezer. Strange really when there are so many sheep.

Last time I purchased a leg of lamb from Sainsbury’s it cost £27 and it had a security tag on it.

Wow £27!
Jan, I’ve not taken all the fur off... just very short. It really does help him from overheating. Do you have to put sun lotion on a baldy patch on his nose, from where the previous owner muzzled him as he was supposedly fighting with the other dogs.

We get given some mutton as a ‘thank you’ for letting a friend keep his sheep here. I do however have to buy lamb as well occasionally.....usually when it is on offer in the supermarket, as the last leg I bought was also over £20.

It will be interesting to see what happens to lamb prices after the 31st December this year. Either the U.K. market will get flooded with U.K. lamb if tariffs to sell it abroad are put in place, which means it will get cheap......until the following year when farmers will just stop breeding as there won’t be any money in it for them.....then lamb will become even more expensive! Or of course farmers will stop getting EU subsidies, even if no tariffs are imposed, so lamb prices will go up anyway!!! 


if you eat lamb.....do it this year! 😳

I love those fancy little lamb chops with loads of fat on them but have you seen the price of them now [eek] I don't mind having a treat now and then but refuse to pay those prices.

Surely they cant get more expensive.

I saw a big spread of snowdrops and daffodils yesterday on my way to Horsham, first ones I have seen this year.

Flowers I have seen today in gardens, yellow and blue primulas, crocuses yellow and purple, naked ladies pale blue, the usual snowdrops and aconites, it´s looking good. 

I know a place in South Cambridgeshire where crocuses used to and probably still do grow through  a tarmac footpath outside a Methodist Church door.

Just for you Paul. 😁

Took the photo this morning. We don’t have any daffodils yet though, just a few green shoots.
